Kong-Rey was packing maximum sustained winds of 198kph, with gusts of up to 244kph, according to CWB data.

The ex-typhoon has been travelling north-northwestward at a speed of 14mph over the past six hours.

When Typhoon Kong-rey nears mainland Japan, it is now not forecast to be as strong as Jebi or even Typhoon Trami, which made landfall as a strong typhoon 157 kph (97 mph).

In Japan, as a result of the approaching Typhoon Kong-Rey, was cancelled 214 flights in the Okinawa Prefecture.

This comes as Japan is still reeling from deadly Typhoon Trami which hit earlier this week.

Japan's 25th typhoon of the season is forecast thereafter to move over northern Japan over the three-day weekend, with the weather agency saying the requisite alerts will follow as necessary.

Buildings weakened from previous storms are most at risk of damage from impending tropical storm Kong-rey.
